Reviews

"This book is magnificent and is filled with stunning images of Roses' work, including her early work and well known rooms, letters, images of her original hand block prints, sample boards, sketches and my favourite- a look book of sorts in the center of the book, filled with pictures of Roses' rooms, just like it would have been given to clients way back in the 1920's 30's. Put this one on your must read list for sure!" "marleyandlockyer.com""There is so much to read about Cumming in this book....just get the book and let it unfold itself to you and you'll be hooked, intrigued and just plain astounded by this lovely lady." "Studio of Style.com""This lovely history of one of the truly great American decorators chronicles Cumming's beginnings and presents beautiful examples of her work." " Traditional Home""This monograph is no mere coffee table book, though photographs of gorgeous spaces are plentiful. Through personal letters and business correspondence, we learn about the day-to-day workings of an influential 20th-century decorating firm." "If the Lamp Shade Fits".".I got completely lost in the pages of sketches, hand-drawn patters, interiors and portraits." " Posted by Kevin Sharkey for Martha Stewart.com"
